I probably did this... I had the javax.accessibility stuff in a
different directory and wanted to store it all away in CVS before I
lost the work.  So if there are blank files there it was probably me.
I believe that Classpath's compilation routines handles this whole
thing nicely... ie we don't even try to compile this.

I suspect Etienne is trying to compile *.java for everything in the
tree and having problems.
